Wild Politics: Feminism, Globalisation, Bio/diversity

by Susan Hawthorne



Last week the IMF's Managing Director Christine Lagarde argued for strengthening the role of women in the world economy, claiming that doing so can raise growth prospects and improve development.

Surely a new paradigm is needed - not one continually based on growth and exploitation of women.

Looking for a new way forward, or a different explanation of what is currently happening? In Wild Politics, Susan Hawthorne challenges the universal endorsement of global western culture with her concept of biodiversity, arguing that biodiversity is a useful metaphor for understanding social, political, and economic relations in the globalised world of the twenty-first century. She provides a visionary outlook and proposes ways forward that emphasise social justice, multiversity and an ecologically-grounded feminist philosophy.
